Master 115,000 btu heater

When I set the thermostat and turn unit on it will heat to correct temp. However, it will not come back on unless I shut it off and turn it back on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Master 115,000 btu heater

Remember, under thermostat operation, the heater heats to 2 degrees above the set temperature, and doesn't come back on until it drops to 1 degree under the set temperature. If it doesn't come back on at 1 degree under, then you do have a thermostat problem, no doubt.

Cz 500 shuts off and comes back on in about 5 minutes. is this a correct procedure.

Heaters have
)Tip over switch If the heater is thermostatically controlled then what you may have is the thermostat cycling just as a central heating system in your home. When heater reaches the temp you set it shuts off, then comes back on when temp drops several degrees below setting. Yes, It is normal. Ned

I have a Reddy Pro 115 BTU kerosene heater the fan starts but shuts off after about 5 to 10 seconds

When you say that the fan starts then stops I assume you also mean that the burner starts and stops. If this is correct and the unit is more than a couple of years old you probably need to change the filter in the back and set the pump pressure. Both the filters and the gauges to set the pressure can be found at along with a good explanation as to why you need the gauges. The pressure is set by bleed air pressure and must be exactly 3.5 psig. The gauge is the only accurate way to do it. The filters clog and change the pressure. When the difference is enough the unit will not run. Now with that said there are several other things which you should check. Check the fuel tank for water. Remove any you find. Remove the cover on the right side as you look at the unit from the front and remove the circuit board. Check for cracked connections. If you find any resolder them and reattach the board. That should take care of the unit and get you back to making heat. Let me know if you need anything else.

Reddy heater 115,000 btu heater runs for about ten minutes then shuts off does this model have a thermostat or carb that might need adjusting????

A heater with this problem is probably the hardest to determine the cause. There is no carb orn thermostat to adj. If it uses a spark plug ignitor I would check the plug gap and make sure it is at an angle to the nozzle. If it has Hot Surface Ignition this will not be the problem. I would then check the fuel filter in the dip tube in the tank and the pump pressure. I should be about 4.5 psi. I would also remove the nozzle and replace it or at least blow it out backwards withlcompressed air to clean it. If all these items fail to correct the problem I would replace the flame sensor. Let me know what you find out or if you have any questions.

I have to play with thermostat to get my heating system on

You did not make it clear if the thermostat is a programmable unit or not. I am wondering if the thermostat is not set on the correct heat anticipation setting. A heat anticipater is a small heater that helps the thermostat turn off before it over shoots the desired temperature setting. If the thermostat is set for a 5 degree setting, it will turn off at 63 degrees if set at 68. If the anticipater was set at 1 or 2 degrees, it will shut off the heater at 66 or 67. Newer thermostats will only allow the thermostat to cycle 6 times per hour so if you never reach the desired temp, you have to wait 10 minutes before it will allow a call for heat. Check the installation instructions to see if there is a setting where you can get the anticipator temperature closer to your set temp. Good luck.

Electric furnace/heater pump/fan unit won't shut off

There are dip switches on the main board.. When you remove the lower panel on the air handler there are instructions to where the dip switches should be for your units fan control. if the switches are in the correct configuration.. The Thermostat may be malfunctioning or not wired properly. and last.. and most expensive.. the motherboard may also be failing.

Short cycling

There are a few reasons why your furnace is restarting after it reaches temp. and shuts off. First, if you have a mercury bulb thermostat it needs to be level and the heat anticipator needs set properly. If you have an electronic thermostat then you need to make sure the DIP switch settings inside are set properly for propane. If you have a digital thermostat there are also settings to be made for your type of heating. These settings will be explained in the thermostat installation instructions. Also, Make sure your furnace filter is clean. If this does not help then there are some other things to check which may need to be done by a technician depending on your mechanical aptitude. Hope this helps!

Master 115,000 will not stay running

It sounds as if your are having a fuel delivery issue. Always start troubleshooting fuel delivery problems with a pump pressure test. Air pump pressure is extremely critical on these computerized heaters. Instructions are at www.reddyparts,.com
